. the united states will not engage in talks for talks' sake. it will require a change in north korea's parties, demanding that pyongyang will meet its obligations on denuclearization. this leads to a few important other principals. first, the nightsticks will not accept north korea as a nuclear quest the united states will not accept the tree as a nuclear state. we will not compensate them for returning to dialogue. we will not tolerate north korea for bullying its majors -- measures. -- neighbors treat the tysons cannot approve without improvement in injured-korean relations. in the meantime, at the u.s. diplomacy on north korea on a wide range of issues continues. close coordination with our treaty allies, japan, remain absolutely central to our approach. we have expanded our engagement might develop a new dialogue key global actors who have joined the rising chorus of voices, calling on the dprk to comply with obligations. china does remain central to altering or korea's calculus and close u.s.-china confrontations will remain a key focus of the medics -- of diplomatic efforts. while the cl
, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun control measures and force the cost of prosecution and incarceration on the federal government. it also would have cr

is that this is an actual battle which is the hidden struggle between the change and the status quo. basically criticizing what happened and saying that he has been forced to challenge the decision. now, what happens next is that the supreme court and the judges there will have to look at the petition, look at the evidence presented to them. they have two weeks to do so, but what has happened already, because of this petition, is the en august ration of the president-elect, uhuru kenyatta has been delayed from 26 march to 16 april, and that is if the court actually throws out the petition and agrees that kenyatta is president. >> in the meantime, we're getting reports of tear gas being fired at odinga's out on the street. just how destabilizing is this refusal of his to accept the election results? >> well, i have to say, it was quite a small cloud outside the supreme court and what you're describing happened earlier in the day to disperse that cloud. it was outside the court. the crowd was pretty vocal. there were politicians up and speaking to the cloud, to people who were singing. yet some people were

a change in the way business is done here would affect other states who may be lined up also with laws that preempt or somehow trump federal law? >> well, as deputy solicitor general said. if the federal law is just viewed as a floor here. for example, if arizona wins, then he said states can impose additional requirements on registration, and the federal lawl itself becomes a nullity. that is the fear of a lot of organizations from the orgses that brought the challenge to the league of women voters that filed an amicus brief supporting the challengers. congress' intent here was to make registration easier. they fear that if arizona wins, then other states are going to impose other kinds of requirements, not just proof of citizenship. so that is the real concern. if arizona loses, there is no change. on the other hand, the final word may rest with congress. whatever the supreme court does, congress could go and amend the national voter registration act. >> ifill: sounds like there could be a consequential ruling. >> it's definitely a very important case and playing out against this bac
and in the past five years or so, south korea and the u.s. have tried to change this dynamic. and now with kim jong ill, he or whoever is behind this is still pushing this line, and i thought what is dangerous is now the other side they view the u.s. and south korea are not playing this game anymore and now he is an untested leader for sure. that's where i suppose this extra tension can come from, but ultimately right now we can just call it rhetoric. >> north korea is one of three cuvens that blocked the u.n.'s attempt of the selling of weapons around the world. our james reports from the u.n. in new york. >> the rules of these proceedings call for consensus. everyone had to agree. but three nations, all of them used to international condemnation, voice their objections. >> iran. due to many legal flaws and loopholes. >> then north korea and then syria. the australian chairing the meeting was not going to give up there. he left the rest of the delegates behind and took the three ambassadors in the room did they really want to block is a treaty that had been years in the making? the meeting re
of change that will be better for society and nice to be here in the union and i very much appreciate also the sponsorship of ireland, which i'm very familiar with, a place i have many times visited and enjoyed. it is home for a lot of reasons and i appreciate the fact that you braved the elements and yesterday with such a beautiful day and what happened today that can change so dramatically and so quickly? as i say i feel very at home because i had an early experience of learning about human rights, very early and growing up in the west of ireland, the only girl wedge between four brothers, older than me and two youngsters and me of course i had to be more interest in human rights and equality but using my elbows and generally asserting myself but as i tried to explain in the book because it is good to record, that wasn't the norm. the ireland i was growing up in was and ireland where girls and women knew their place, their place was in the home or in the nunnery or if they were talented enough they could become writers or artists or musicians. i was very aware that boys had much more opt

. could your life in the air about to be changed? we have a special report. let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. cold feet on gay marriage. could the supreme court be having second thoughts of taking up the lightning rod issue? today protesters and gay rights supporters swarming the steps of the supreme court and inside the justices were listening to the arguments. bullet point by bullet point. for and against. california's ban on same-sex marriage. that's the so-called proposition 8. the justices have the power to make gay marriage the law of the land. currently, it's actually only the law in nine states and washington, d.c. if you go straight from that to all 50, well, that's a really big edict from the high court and some justices sounded wary of issuing such a broad ruling. >> on a question like that, of such fundamental importance, why should it not be left for the people? either acting through initiatives and referendums or through their elected public officials? >> well, others like justice kennedy questioned why they were hearing the case in the first
? >> that is good news. >> you know, the sequester has happened. >> how does that change the equation? the dire predictions that we have heard regarding the sequester? >> we need to do everything we can to avoid self-inflicting wounds. >> people are finally optimistic. >> but it has to be based on common sense. >> i would like to say that common sense has come out of the closet. >> bill clinton calls for an end to doma. >> former president bill clinton is having a change of heart and urging the supreme court to do the same. >> clinton made doma the law of the land, clearly he was not proud to do. it was done under the cover of darkness. >> i believe that doma is unconstitutional. >> we learned from history. >> i know it is unconstitutional. >> we learn from history. >> this is a discriminatory law. >> this is a civil rights battle that is very nearly won. >> we learned today that the economy added 236,000 jobs in february. and the unemployment rate is down to 7.7%. the lowest since 2008. and all of that is very good news. now, sometimes these jobs reports, it can be sort of good news at the top
if it is not a dramatic change, could only help the president as he relates to the new government. i would say that is the first part. there dennis and i agree. the policy summit, these guys will be having something like five hours together, probably the most intense conversations and time netanyahu and obama have ever spent together. obama has said there is not any leader he has sat with more than netanyahu. this is the most intense period of time that they have had. each one has sober expectations. they have been at this for four years. obama knows that they have different political visions. and it cannot do know is that netanyahu -- netanyahu knows obama is less inclined towards intervention. this could be a good thing. from the israel side, my sense is -- hear about the layout howe saw the conversation and then lay out some other key points, syria, lebanon, and the palestinian issue -- on iran, i think it is clear that men -- that netanyahu people go in, when we hear that certain weaponry has been moved out of the goals, or diplomacy has been indecisive, how do they relate to that? the red
the expansion of medicaid, and governor rick scott of florida has changed his mind and governor chris christie i don't know if he's changed his mind, but accepting that medicaid. why do you think those two governors are doing it and why aren't you? >> well, we looked at this rather intently. the legislature just offer the course of the last 24 hours in texas and the republican caucus overwhelmingly support the position of not expanding medicaid. it is a broken system. we have asked the federal government for years to allow us the flexibility to be able to put these programs into place, but the fact is, it's a broken system. it's going to cost trillions of dollars to implement this program. but texans are not going to be black mailed into expanding a program, but that the federal government is telling us they're giving us all of this free money. greta. they can't keep criminals in jail today, much less be able to have extra money to pass out to these states. so the idea that money is going to be available for expanded medicaid is a pipe dream. >> greta: all right, are you saying that governor ric
is that the law on this type of issue, especially as it relates to material support of terrorism, actually changed in 2006 and so it may be that they won't be able to reach back because the constitution and try him before that time. let's listen to one constitutional law expert i spoke with. >> until now, we thought that we could try them under these charges in the military commission system and it looks like it's not going to turn out that way which means that material support charges can be tried in the federal court system as they always have and they are highly successful in terms of bringing indictments and in terms of bringing convictions. >> so, wolf, we expect to hear a lot more about this suspect tomorrow with that presentment in federal court in new york city. >> we'll see who represents him in that as well in federal court. thank you very much, joe johns. let's dig deeper with senator ron wyden of oregon. he's a member of the intelligence committee. your immediate reaction that we learned to the news today. you may have learned about it longer than we did. what do you think of the decis
communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world
worked on long island and it's changed long island in a lot of ways. places have gotten far, far more diverse quite quickly. i remember when i covered the last big immigration fight in 2006-2007, one of the hot spots was in long island partly because things had changed very quickly. there were a lot of day laborers. tensions around day laborers. what are the politics four and your district? >> the politics for me to be very honest with you and i think i have extremely intelligent constituents -- >> as does every member of congress. >> they follow what's going on as far as in the news and everything else like that. but my district, the immigration issue is so diverse. it's not one solid large group. >> interesting. >> so, you know, i have asians. i have latinos. i have just -- you name it. if you look at the percentages they are there. so it's not an issue. i will say to you eight or nine years ago it was an issue. i was speaking at a temple and they were saying, you know, they didn't like the way downtown was going because these people were buying the stores in a said so you would rat

's not clear whether this will do anything to change north korea's behavior immediately. we've heard some hostile rhetoric over the last few days. to borrow u.s. ambassador rice's words the sanctions are designed to bite hard. for instance, there have been cases reported to the u.n. sanctions committee of north korean agents carrying cash in bulk. the effectiveness will depend on how measures are implemented in each country and to make the sanctions work member nations must cooperate in exchanging information regarding north korea's activities and act upon them. >> thanks very much. >> they threatened t u.s. with a preemptive strike. >> the officials said countermeasures will be necessary if the u.s. does not change what they called its hostile attitude. they accused the u.s. of trying to spark a nuclear war. they said they will exercise their right to a preemptive attack on what they called the headquarters of the aggressors. the aurves officer told the crowd that north korea is ready to fire a nuclear missile at washington, d.c. state run tv broadcast the rally. military personnel and c

and it is clear from our discussions they are better north korea policy must change. today we will look at the illicit dvds that are underwriting north korea's weapons programs. were going to look at it ballistic missiles sales, at its meth trafficking. this is the only country in the world that manufactures and traffics mass. for going to look at counterfeit of the u.s. 100-dollar bills and were going to think about the reason why this country has been called the supreme estate. we will hear from one witness who will testify north korea's illicit moneymaking machinery continues to turn. but it is this dependency by the regime on notice that dvds that can affect be exploited. this is the achilles' heel we did this one. in the fall of 2005, the bush administration targeted a macau-based bank of delta asia for its money laundering role while u.s. money was counterfeited, they were laundering for north korea. this led other banks to shun north korean business, which finally isolated the regime and cut off its ability to get current fee. however, after kim jong il made references, in this l

it a federal crime to move guns unlawfully against state line and changing things on books there. something people will talk about as a success if that gets through. so much focus on background checks. one of the big questions from people who are still hesitant about that is what would it actually do in a practical sense if you've got a neighbor-to-neighbor selling a weapon or a family member to another and how would that work in practical terms. the idea of background checks has broiad support but it gets down to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see
party, we are change, tyranny response team, and americans for a free republic. and these anti-government patriot groups have skyrocketed a number during president obama's time in office. there were only 149 groups in 2008. in 2012 there's over 1300. look at the chart there. yesterday the southern poverty law center sent a letter to homeland security secretary janet napolitano warning more growth could happen. and brian levin is with the study for hate and extremism. gentlemen, i want you to start tonight -- it's your report, mark, so lead the way here. let me ask you this. i'm going to get into this in my close tonight on the show. i look at obama as a perfect american. i don't mean politically. we can agree left and right. you can argue about the drones, fiscal policy and all that stuff. but as a citizen. he went to school, never broke a law, raised a wonderful family, good husband, good family. i don't think he's got a speeding ticket. the guy does everything right. and he's really been pretty moderate on guns until the horror of newtown. i don't know what they're so afraid
changing loopholes and make it revenue-neutral is some tax component to actually raise money against the deficit part of any deal that has to come out of all these talks? >> i mean, that is -- that's certainly the -- that's certainly the president's view, and that we had hoped that congress would have acted in the last month to pass, you know -- the president has put a balanced package on the table that is a combination of increasing revenues, of closing loopholes, as well as spending cuts, and, you know, the hope was that we would be able to pass that and have the revenues as part of that go for deficit reduction. now, you know, speaker boehner has -- is for tax reform. he has a view that we shouldn't use that money for deficit reduction, but what the president finds encouraging is that, you know, we're in the same universe in terms of the types of -- the types of reform that we think needs to happen. the president has been willing to join entitlement reform. we're not there yet, and the president had a really good dinner yesterday. there's a lot of differences, but some common grou
bit of a change, and if there is sort of one feeling, it's that if this happens quickly, it will be someone who is more expected. for example, the archbishop of milan, cardinal scola. if it goes on a while and they can't seem to coalesce around one or two candidates early on, it does open up the possibility of a north american pope. possibly a latin american or an african pope. so we'll have to see the way it plays out. i think the length of the conclave could start to give us some indication of how things are going. >> chris jansing and father john. thank you very much. i know you're going to be there throughout the hour, throughout the day until we see some smoke and until they complete their deliberations today, we'll get back to you the moment anything happens, thank you both. >>> meanwhile, here in washington on capitol hill today, conflicting fiscal visions. paul ryan unveiled his republican budget. now president obama is about to head to the hill to encourage senate democrats to offer their alternative later this week. joining me now for our daily fix, "washington
